His first fumble was a drive killer - coming on the Bears' first possession after his second pick, and the last three all came on the Bears' lone possession in overtime, making it virtually impossible for them to tie or win the game. Beckham made that pass look way too easy. The trick-play touchdown was set up by a recovered onside kick by Daniel Brown on a play Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did not dive for the loose ball. "And those "except for a couple big plays" can get you". "We would have liked to have seen better blocking in the front line, which would have created more separation for the back line".
But the Bears' 30-27 loss to the Giants demanded a different drill. "He came from a small program, he did enough things in the preseason to say he's good enough to make our team, but we needed to see more from him in order to feel confident in giving him a jersey, and he's done some things behind the scenes that have given us more of that confidence".
The Bears have more to worry about than their run defense going up against the Rams.
Linebacker Alex Ogletree intercepted two passes, scoring on an 8-yard return on the second play from scrimmage. It wasn't our best game, but I feel like we still played good. "I didn't do that today", Daniel said.
This is not a case of some media clown claiming he knows more about offense than the head coach, and I actually understood the timeout he called setting up the Giants' field goal at the end of the first half and refuse to criticize people with hindsight. After going over 100 yards only once in the previous four games, the Bears ran for 118 yards against the Giants, including 76 by Jordan Howard.
Nagy's reaction to that success was to hand the ball off twice to Howard in the second half - the only two handoffs of the half - and drop to pass 33 times.
The Giants couldn't do anything to take the run away from the Bears in the second half because the Bears only called two running plays while dropping back to pass 30 times.
